? >> right. the white house continues to point to massachusetts where 123 people enrolled in the program the first month. that number steadily grew. >> speaking of massachusetts, i thought it was fascinating yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific
in massachusetts and the same people who were the architects of the affordable care act, so to say that they were different plans is ridiculous. >> dave, you've heard republicans have been very critical here of obama care specifically the individual mandate. and mitt romney did make a comment on that. take a listen. >> you say it should only be done at the state level, but here's what he said in 2007 about the idea of the thmandate. >> i think you'll find when it's all said and done after all the states that are the laboratories of democracy get their chance to try their own plans, that those who follow the path that we pursued will find it's the best path and we'll end up with a nation that has taken a mandate approach. >> so what is your thought here? what is done on the state level, is it reasonable for think it can be done on the national level? >> i'll say something very rare. i think romney is being consistent. actually is consistent to say he wants a state plan being he wants the federal government to stay out of it. it might irritate democrats to see him again, but he is making a correct
knows something about obama care from being from massachusetts. any other reasons? >> maybe because he's built businesses, corporations that hire tens of thousands of americans. but, you know, nancy passed the bill away from the fog of washington. pelosi doesn't take into account what's really going on around the country. she's going to go out and simply make the talking point. this is what the president wants her to do. this is what she's doing. so frankly just dismiss her. let's go back to what is happening just like the interview you just had. the interview you had was one on the numbers. when they talked about 5% of the population over 15 million people. if they are not served by obama care like promised, that's like 15 million people not served. >> let's go back to what romney said. was it too strong for him to say it's rotten, the rest of the three years of president obama? >> remains to be seen. i would say he's not been right about a lot of things. we'll leave it at that. the one thing he was not accurate about is where he said massachusetts works because it's a state plan. gov
thought. in fact, when scott brown won that seat in massachusetts, you voted so quickly to ensure that not one republican will have input in the senate. and you now you complain about republicans being part of the fix. you didn't care what we had to say during the time. >> this is not true. >> nancy pelosi made it clear. you'll have to read the bill when it's passed. because you didn't want to take the time to listen to republican ideas to get republican input and now you want to blame us. that's not how it works. >> the secret is this whole thing was bit on conservative republican ideas in the first place that you all cut and ran from because this president is the one who promoted it. >> zero votes. zero republican votes because you didn't want to work with us. you didn't care about our ideas. and now you want to blame us. it doesn't work that way. >> that's just not how it happened. >> when we passed part "d" and that's a great success. >> guys, we've got to leave it there. mo from the dnc, sean from the rnc, this was fun. let's do it again. >> thanks for having us. >> thanks. >
rally up in massachusetts, the state made famous for his so-called romney care which was used as a blueprint to the affordable care act of the president's. the president is at war with republican who is have made it their sole mission these days and years to destroy the health care law. while the aca has certainly seen its share of glitches or problems, the gop has gone to great lengths to magnify and in many cases distort the issues. look at the latest headline in today's los angeles times. quote, another obama care horror story debunked. gwen moore a democrat from washington and jonathan gruber an m.i.t. professor in economics. he also served as an adviser to the white house and to congress on the president's health care plan. congresswoman, i want to start with you. i think somebody from mars would watch the congress these days and say what are those people so angry about? fighting like mad from the republican side with all this anguish and frightening anger. and i get the feeling it's not about whether the program is working or not. what they are angry about the democrats
of massachusetts. his opponent had a marquis name, henry kabt lodge. kennedy won an upset again. they replicated this model in 1960 in the wisconsin proom ima in the west virginia primary. joseph kennedy stepped out of the spotlight, leaving the stage so his kids could shine. he stopped by the president elect's home in georgetown, to meet john f. kennedy jr. >> i counted this up. >> how do you feel about jackson? >> after all, it is amazing. >> joe kennedy was insistent that jack bring robert into the cabinet as attorney general. president kennedy could have someone he could absolutely trust in that position. rfk resisted the idea, tried to get washington wise men clark clifford to talk him out of it. we know how that went. >> i am pleased to accept the position of the attorney generalship of the united states. >> in 1961, joseph kennedy suffered a debilitating stroke, lived out the last decade of his life away from public view with the knowledge that his family name had become the gold standard of american political dynasties. for more on the party that joe built, i want to bring in philip john
. >> but to the prototype for obama care, the massachusetts health care plan created by mr. obama's former 2012 rival, mitt romney, in that first month, in that program, slow rollout, only roughly 100 people signed up. >> virtually every resident in the commonwealth is insured today. >> health care reform in this state was a success. that doesn't mean it was perfect right away. >> officials warn, the numbers would be low. >> that doesn't include those who enrolled in state exchanges. >> the state exchanges, which are essentially set up for free by the federal government in the states that accepted them, are doing very well. >> it's cranking out people that are joining up every day. >> over the last three years, internal obstacles and bureaucratic molasses threatened the whole enterprise. >> when you go to the pulse center and find out how many residents in that state are being helped, you only shake your head as to why we aren't doing that in every state of the union. >> all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. >> if there is a way that you can insure every one of your people or get them
in massachusetts, too. the young people are last-minute folks. we expect them to roll in december 15 and expect them to do so until the bitter end in march. >> you have people who can use this program to their advantage. these are people who need a lot of medical services, and for which their expenditures are slight. then those who are paying a lot into the program. it's only common sense. why would you need to pay into a program before you could use it. it will have a lot some of outflows and very few inflows. martha: anyone who has a medical condition and they are concerned. they are definitely going to make sure they get on. it's interesting as well. the federal government as part of the deal gave the health insurance companies assurances if it became too onerous on them them would get a federal subsidy to keep this whole thing going and we know where that money comes from. that's taxpayer money. >> you can't give away valuable resource and expect people not to overuse them. it's like putting me on 0 bufft where i can eat all i want and i'll eat the caviar until i throw up. the question is
the fox news deck. >> watching three developing stories right now. first, massachusetts, four people found dead in one home two adults and two little kids. we're expecting new information in a news conference from police at any minute. we'll have it for you. george zimmerman arrested again. there's the new mug shot. we're waiting for the 9-1-1 call. >>> and a live look at a scene in toronto, where -- well, it will be, anyway -- where the city council is moving to strip the crack-smoking mayor of more of his power. >>> his fox news interview. >> i admitted to using illegal drugs in the last year. okay. i've admitted to drinking too much. okay. >> and there's much more to come from north america's mayor. so let's get too -- let's get to it. >> first from the news deck at 3:00 in new york city, hundreds of families are searching through piles of debris to find what remains of their homes and their lives. weather officials say more than 40 twisters tore across a wide stretch of the midwest over the weekend, bulldozing house after house, and littering entire town with debris. most people scramm
month in boston, for example, noted that in the first month of sign-ups for the massachusetts version of health reform, only 100 people signed none the whole first month. but in massachusetts, eventually the glitches got ironed out, and enrollment numbers went up. and now in massachusetts, there is essentially universal coverage. that state is essentially the template for our national numbers. but the numbers out today, 100,000 people signed up in the first month. in addition, another one million people were determined to be eligible for getting a new play in marketplaces for health insurance. but they have not chosen a plan yet. the overall idea is for everybody to get insurance over time. the republicans are rejoicing in the early low numbers, praying nobody else signs up to get health insurance, but we'll see how it goes. history tells us these things do tend to start slowly. also in washington today, you just heard on "all in" with chris hayes, they also saw the introduction of a landmark new piece of federal legislation that would try to protect women's access to abortion, protec
numbers. but let's remember what happened in massachusetts with romney care. he was their candidate last year. >> i've heard of him. >> when he was governor of massachusetts, he had romney care. only 123 people signed up in the first month of the massachusetts health care law. 123. that's all that signed up. or just 0.3% of the total who signed up by the end. 20% signed up in the last month of enrollment. so just look what happened with romney care. the potential head of their party last year, they had less than 1% in the first month, 0.3% to be exact. and in the last month, 20% because as it gets closer to the due date, that's when people make a rush. it's almost like christmas shopping. >> exactly. yeah. >> so it takes time. and there's a demand. we see a similar trend nationally. >> we do. and, you know, we all have to be frustrated with the website problems. and i'm sure there were some missed opportunities there, but in terms of being on track for this law to work and for people to sign up by the date they need to sign up, we are still on track to be able to make things work. and ev
a common sense solution. the president said we use massachusetts as a template. and why is not texas and north carolina do what massachusetts did and get veried. why do we need the federal government, one size fits all approach you very much. >> thank you, guys. >>> all right. check it out. he said check it out. new technology making it easier to track anyone you want. you okay with that. douglas kennedy is in new york. >> reporter: bill we know the government is watching and recording us, but the question is how many other people are as well? a wayward husband kisses a mistress in a taxicab and another canoodling in an elevator. both men busted by private investigator tom rufkin who uses an array of spy cams to collect evidence for his clients. >> you have dash cams and drop cams and cameras that go anywhere at any time. >> the level of sophistication of cameras and hd capabilities are incredible. >> spy cams are new tools available to private investigators. and what is more it is not limited to professional snoops and some fear it is making us a toemths surveillance society. you g
someone who was an adviser involved, jonathan gruber, an economics professor at the massachusetts institute of technology and behind the massachusetts health care plan, romney care as you may know. so mr. gruber, professor gruber, these numbers are rather disappointing, i would think. do you think that the administration is going to be able to get the website up and running enough to make the 7 million enrollee projection needed by the spring? >> you know, i don't agree with the characterization it's disappointing. i think they're meaningless. look, when we open our system in massachusetts the first month the people could pay premiums and enroll, 123 people enrolled. by the end of the year, it was 36,000. that meant we got .3% of the people the first month. by that state the federal government did great, 1.3% of the people the first month. it's too early to say anything useful. the real deadline we have to focus on is march of next year. that's when the individual mandate kicks in. that's when people need to be signed up and what we saw in massachusetts was a large rush before the
there is no way obamacare would have ever passed. massachusetts might like their health care plan but all of the polls show it and president obama not only his approval rating personally but politically as well has gone down as a result of the rollout. >> the polls show they like the shutdown even less. we will be sitting here and i promise you it is going to cost republicans in the midterm. martha: we will bring you back and find out. what does the president do now, what does he say, that continues to be asked this morning. always good to see you. bill: can a 6'5", 320-pound professional football player be bullied? why did miami dolphins player say he walked away from his team and the other player on that team now suspended indefinitely? martha: investigation into benghazi now goes to the next level. one senator issuing a bold threat the white house unless congress get some answers finally. >> the fact is we have four dead americans because of a protest or because of guys out for a while decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? (dad) just feather it out
numbers would be low and increase over time as just was the experience in massachusetts where only 0.3% or 123 people paying premiums enrolled in the first month. as we've said, the problems with the website will cause the numbers to be lower than initially anticipated. just this morning we heard from republican senator robb portman who said the website's technological problems, coupled with the fine print in the affordable care act are leaving many americans uncovered. >> it's something that is even worse than many of us predicted because people are losing their coverage and not being able to sign up. >> reporter: the administration's target for year one remains seven million new enrollments in the federal marketplace. they're about 6,950,000 short of that, with 139 days to go. connell: that's a big gap, peter. what are lawmakers asking the administration to do? >> reporter: arthel, we heard democrats and republicans alike demanding an investigation but now those calls are growing louder and more specific especially now this morning from democratic north carolina senator kay hagen.
. >> reporter: administration officials are also fond of pointing to massachusetts, arguing that when governor romney set up universal care there, his initial enrollment numbers were also low. those familiar with massachusetts, however, say that's not true, that in the first full month of active enrollment in just that one state, some 45,000 people signed up. >> that translated into 27% of the amount of people that ended up enrolling in that entire first year. if that were to be reflected at the federal level we would expect 1.89 million people to be enrolled in the first month. >> reporter: instead of 40,000 to 50,000. the administration has pledged to release its own enrollment numbers sometime this week. analysts worry the administration will try to make the numbers look larger by including those that have simply filed an application. >> in my mind no one is enrolled in obama care until the insurance company knows about them. and my conversations with the insurance companies indicates the numbers are extremely low. >> reporter: officials argue they will only include people who have applied

chair nominee janet yellen stressed the need to keep interest rates low. in a letter to massachusetts senator elizabeth warren. yellen wrote that unemployment reaching 6 and a half percent was not a trigger and that "monetary policy is likely to remain highly accommodative long after one of the economic thresholds... has been crossed." "the biggest challenge we have is credibility, that we will do whatever it takes to get the economy back and get inflation up to 2%." speaking before a conference of bankers, charles evans, president of the chicago fed offered a total amount for the fed's asset purchase program but no time-table for tapering.

massachusetts. so is the president being up staged by all of this criticism? >> no, i think this is sour grapes. another example of republicans overplaying their hand when romney had a very similar plap imp lechlt implemented in massachusetts. most of the people went on to the medicaid program. it's very simple what's happening at the federal level. keep in mind, it does not affect 80% of americans. another 30% through medicaid or through the military: only 20% of americans don't have insurance or get their snurnsz in the individual markets. that's the 20% that would be eligible. that's a pool of approximately 60 million people. what they need to get these exchanges to work is prrksly 7 million participating. all of the analysis shows certainly for the uninsured this is going to be a far bet eer deal right now, everyone for the 15 million. kaiser says they're going to get much, much better deals for most of them that premiums are lower. 47% of americans like obama care or wanted stronger. only a 35 wanted to go to the republican plan which is go back to the status quo before obama care. so i t
to enact it will be popular as it is in massachusetts. >> you may be right but it's speculative. even if you -- even if you are right, doesn't it seem logical as i said in the talking points memo to just give it another year and iron it all out, explain it, i don't see a downside in that. i really don't. i would allow people who want to sign up to continue to sign up, all right? those who do the no give them a year fix what's broken it doesn't make me unhappy unlike other commentators it does not make me happy to see the president of the united states, no heart who he or she might be to be accused of being a liar. a rank liar that doesn't make me happy. i think we should get away from that. give it a year, it's our fault, we screwed it up. we will unscrew it and then we will go next september or whatever. doesn't that make sense to you, doc? >> two responses. one is the reason we can't delay it bill it comes to the most poor par part of the law. discriminate against insurer discriminate by charging sick more than healthy. you can't do that without the man date. you can't have the mand
what the president could have done, meaning looking at massachusetts, seeing what the plan of massachusetts did. he noted that the president could have seen that people would actually be kicked off their insurance policies, that there was a lot to learn from the states having control including the biggest lesson of all, he said the president should learn to be honest. take a listen. >> obamacare barely made it through washington, as you know. there is no question in my mind that had the president been truthful and told the american people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket, had he told them that at the time it was going through washington there would have been such a hew and cry against it, it would not have passed. >> mitt romney goes on to say what was good for massachusetts was not good for everyone. if he actually said some of you are going to be kicked off your insurance we wouldn't be at the place we are right now. some people are saying look at the website. every night it goes down, it's not secure. the other
about this they point to the state of massachusetts, there's the model. the state of massachusetts during the first month signed up barely over 100 people. this is the same thing. what is your reaction to that? is it the same thing? is it just a slow rollout? >> well the state of massachusetts didn't throw off more people every day than were able to sign up. the state of massachusetts didn't spend $600 million and have 3 1/2 years to get this ready. and just, i think it was yesterday, the governor of vermont took action to delay at least a month the implementation. this is a very liberal democratic governor in a very liberal state saying this isn't ready. if the administration had been honest about the figures on day one, day two, day three, the truth is, we would have already had some sort of a reasonable time out to give an opportunity for the american people to properly judge cost benefit and hopefully, reverse this terrible trend of throwing people off health care plans that they liked, that did in fact cover them and costs less. that is something that is going on every day in
have seen a little bit, it is a causation a state law in massachusetts has caused a shortage of doctors haven't do with more people going to the doctors because they do have insurance. speaker even after seven years massachusetts implemented in obamacare style reform, half of the primary practices in that state remain closed to new customers and the customers who can make appointments are waiting a long time. massachusetts is still feeling those effects. it is a big problem, bigger than a glitching website. jenna: one of the things we were trying to do was reach out to the administration to see if there were any previous statements about the doctor shortage because we have heard about it before. some may say this is a good thing more people have insurance and are going to the doctors because those people who didn't have insurance went to the doctors anyways and got it a bill, doctors would never get paid because the patients can afford it. even though there is a doctor shortage potentially does that mean it will be worse off for the patients? >> they will still be seen but it will take
*eus ago in massachusetts -- two days ago in massachusetts saying it is a pretty popular plan, they reined in the cost. it worked for massachusetts, why not the country? >> this is government trying to put this in practice. when is the last time you went to d.m.v.? you happy with that experience? now for health care you've got to go through the same mish. you've had the series of rolling crises. the rollout a disaster. you've got the upcoming cancellation probably of employer-provided policies. and now looming just out there, just ahead you've got a doctor crisis. >> what do you mean by a doctor crisis? >> doctors are fleeing anything to do with medicare, medicaid and the obama exchanges. >> why? >> because they are not being paid properly. hospitals are not being paid properly. medicare is going to lose $700 billion. doctors are swamped with new paper work, new rules, new regulations, and they've got absolutely no protection whatsoever from lawsuits. they predict 90,000 doctor shortage. 90,000 within six years. 90,000 doctors short. >> you know what? on some exchanges they don't even list

. again, context is important. in massachusetts when they went through their health care implementation, only 0.3% of people signed up in the first month. >> and we're looking at 1.3. an improvement over massachusetts. absolutely right. >> i think people take their time to sign up. it is unacceptable that the website isn't working. we made that clear in our lunch today with dennis mcdonough. but the perspective is important on that issue as well because most people do wait until they've take an look at all of their options, until they get closer to the deadline before they sign up. it's an issue, but it's being solved. >> so let me ask you, if you can give me insight in how the meeting went, would you say the house democrats and senate democrats who were there are all in line and as optimistic as you are? was there pushback? >> the democratic party is a big tent. i think he heard people that were supportive of states in which it's gone well like connecticut, and he heard a lot of pushback today. there's no excuse for the state of the website, but he did say -- dennis mcdonough said it i

robin. but as he began his three-year residency at massachusetts general hospital, there were indications from the beginning that charles and psychiatry might not be the perfect fit. >> part of the residency is that you're supposed to go to a weekly group therapy session and you didn't want to go. >> there were 12 of us residents in mass general, and there was a group therapy once a week. and i didn't go. i thought it's a pointless exercise so i -- i was called in to the chief's office after about seven weeks of non-appearance. he said to me, why aren't you going to therapy? i said, sir, i came here to give therapy, not to receive it. he said you're in denial. i said, of course i'm in denial. denial is the greatest of all defense mechanisms. i could be a professor of denial. i'm an expert. i was going on and on. he wasn't amused. >> he gave an ultimatum. go to group therapy or leave the program. >> so i went to the next 21 weeks of sessions or whatever it was but i didn't really say a word. so whatever people would notice that, they'd say why aren't you talking? i said because
